Atmel just seems to run hot/cold with the Linux support, that lowers
my confidence.
However, GCC is essentially the very same compiler on both, Linux and
Windows (as well as any other OS GCC supports), so Xmega patches that
are used to build the Windows toolchain should apply without problems
also for Linux.  The only thing is there's no Atmel-provided Linux
toolchain as a binary distribution.
See here:

OTOH, you could consider that a value: while (most) Windows users
never really learn that they are eligible to also compile that stuff
from source (with the option to possibly modify the source if they
found a bug that really annoys them), you'll eventually know how to do
that. ;-)
Except that most Windows users don't even care to build the compiler from 
source, much less modify it themselves.

I've tried to get the Atmel toolchain working, just too many problems.
From the renaming of the defines, to the _delay_ms bug, and finally to the code compiling without error and just flat out not running.

I can't spend anymore time on it, I'm going to switch back to the version in the Ubuntu repository. The code compiles there without any hitches.
